In brief: Three weeks

Discomfort is mild and should resolve within seven to ten days.
Most women can drive in three to five days, at which point they no longer require pain tablets. Most women take one to two weeks off of work. You are not allowed to do any lifting or exercise for the first three weeks.

In brief: Usually about 2 wks

It is a bit patient dependent, but with support bra and starting gradually, jogging is often ok within a couple of weeks.
Be certain to check with your surgeon, as each breast type and patient are individually decided. Comfort and avoid overdoing is often the reason why some surgeons are very restrictive.

For vigorous exercise as with jogging it may be uncomfortable for several weeks. By 4-6 weeks no limitations.
